In the 21st century, digital libraries have extensively recognized the inclusion of emerging online databases for learning and research purposes throughout the world. However, literature exhibits the inadequate empirical assessment of databases in higher education. Thus, this study aims to test the Online Database Adoption and Satisfaction (ODAS) Model for determining Chinese, Malaysian and Pakistani graduate students’ adoption of and satisfaction in using databases. This research also cross-validates the ODAS model for identifying significant differences across countries. To test the cross-validation of the ODAS model, data was collected through a survey of 600 graduate learners studying in universities in China, Malaysia, and Pakistan. The ODAS model was tested using the Rasch model and structural equation modeling across cultures and identified the applicability of the model for Chinese, Malaysian, and Pakistani students in assessing their adoption and satisfaction based on five components: computer self-efficacy, intention to use, satisfaction, perceived usefulness, and ease of use. These determinants had causal direct and indirect relationships among themselves. The findings of the cross-validation of the ODAS model were tested using invariance analyses and exhibited that there are statistically significant differences among the students of three countries. Future researchers, academicians, and practitioners can use the contributions of this study to aid them in assessing, comparing, and implementing research databases in higher education.
